Sculpture description:
Abstract Carved Marble Garden sculpture,
This modern sculpture entitled `Forbidden Fruit` by Simon Burns-Cox represents `The Tree of knowledge of Good and Evil`. The apple is hanging from the tree waiting to be picked while the serpent is crawling up unnoticed ready to seduce Eve. It has a large gold eye. The message is that you are being watched. Remember, it says, that this is the forbidden fruit which Eve picked and gave to Adam thus expelling them both from The Garden of Eden and eternal life.

The sculpture has been made from a variety of media but primarily Marble: Green Guatemalan, Black and Gold Portoro, and Light Grey Carrara plus Grey English Slate and Gold Leaf.
Artist's comments:
The sculpture was made both by hand and machine. Simon much prefers using the traditional hand method of carving rather than using modern machinery, as he believes it results in a better finish. Highly polishing the marble is also done by hand because of the beautiful finish it creates. As well as being a Sculptor, Simon is also a Letter Carver. The words were carved into the slate using a hamper and 6mm chisel. The serpent was produced from marble with a gilded eye created from gold leaf. Overall, five main processes were involved in the creation of this piece: design and drawings, carving, polishing, letter-cutting and gold leaf work. Simon hopes that the sculpture `Forbidden Fruit` will demonstrate The Artist as a Polymath and show The Sculptor as a Master of all Trades in the age of Jack.
